Ferdinand Rocker Breaks His Foot

FRANZ FERDINAND rocker NICK MCCARTHY is performing shows sitting in a chair after injuring his foot during the British band's U.S. tour.
The Take Me Out hitmakers are currently on a jaunt through the States, but disaster struck when MCCarthy picked up a leg injury in a mystery accident.
He has to hobble around on crutches when he is not performing, and sits down during concerts to ease the pain.
But the rocker is hoping for an unconventional cure - he is experimenting with alternative therapies in a bid to overcome the injury.
In a posting on the Scottish band's official blog, MCCarthy writes: "I've bust my foot and it's driving me insane but the shows are brilliant. Sitting around all day with my foot over my heart, to get the swelling down they tell me. I had to get out...
"This is the old Austrian tradition of the Kneipp Kur, which I learned back in my childhood in the Bavarian Alps. Who'd have known it would ever come in handy?"
And MCCarthy's bandmates are helping to keep his spirits up - they have posted a light-hearted film on the website showing the guitarist hobbling around the Colorado countryside to the strains of Time To Say Goodbye by classical singers Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman.
